History of Bone Fracture: Treatment and Immobilization

Sahib N. Muminagic.

Bone fracture, loss of stability, limb pain, stress and dysfunction of the extremities, as stress conditions have emerged in the first days of the human existence. Severity of injury, in conjunction with the pathophysiological disorder, often led to the loss of limbs. The humans have recognized, long time ago that animals with the injured and soothed- fractured limb tended to reduce the limb movement to a minimum, did not move it up and down bl, in order to prevent the further injury. Following these observations the humans started to utilize a primitive splint (i.e. a piece of bark or wood), in order to prevent the movement of the injured limb(s). It is important to note that these primitive procedures were known to all people of the ancient cultures. With the increasing development of the human mind and the development of different technologies, the process of development and sophistication of the bone immobilization (e.g. by utilizing metal splints and various plaster osteosynthetic means) reached the highest level ever.

Key words: bone fracture, imobilisation, hystory of imobilisation.
